And then there was this one ...

Falstaff won his first bracelet at the 2006 WSOP on the same day that his home country of Italy won the World Cup (of soccer). He had been shutout since then and won a bracelet just at the right time.

Yup. The internets are definitely broken.

Or at least cracked.




{Above content ripped off wholesale from the one and only Tao of Poker which you better go read dammit, except for edited portions, which are blamed on it being 85 degrees in my office today and are my fault sorry. Photo taken by Flipchip, the best damned poker photographer in the business and - you guessed it - ripped off. Apologies to any and all who may be insulted by the above. Special apologies to Falstaff, who is a nice guy, a fit bike riding machine and who generally doesn't look all *that* much like Max Pescatori.}
